Official Solution:

It takes computer A 6 hours and 40 minutes to finish a job. If computer B can process the same job in 10 hours, how long will it take, for both computers working together, to finish the job?

A. 6 hours and 20 minutes
B. 5 hours and 10 minutes
C. 4 hours and 40 minutes
D. 4 hours
E. 3 hours and 20 minutes

After rewriting the time needed to finish the job in minutes, we construct an equation:
$$\frac{1}{400}+\frac{1}{600} = \frac{3+2}{1200} = \frac{5}{1200} = \frac{1}{240}$$

240 minutes equals 4 hours.

Answer: D

Seems to me like a 600 level as it is a straight forward question but the numbers are not the easiest to work with...
